    Private Money Brokering: Multiple Streams of Real Estate Investment Income with Gary Myers - Part 2

    Private Money Brokering: Multiple Streams of Real Estate Investment Income with Gary Myers - Part 2

    A private money broker is an intermediary who brings non-owner occupied real estate investor borrowers and private money lenders together.

    The broker’s essential function is to gather paperwork from these borrowers and oversee the loan and packaging process for submission to the lender for underwriting, approval, and funding. Upon closing, the private money broker receives an origination fee as compensation for the services provided.

    There are people all over the country begging for returns on their money higher than the paltry amount paid by banks for CDs and other deposits. They want to lend to smart real estate investors but don’t know how to find them.

    Brokers don’t need sales pitches because there are so many people in the marketplace looking for funding right now. There is no overhead, no receivables, no refunds, and no losses. This is a service that is well-accepted and revered by borrowers as well as lenders.

    Real Estate Investment Private Equity Funds, Notes and Deeds with Heather Dreves

    Real Estate Investment Private Equity Funds, Notes and Deeds with Heather Dreves

    The highest profits in real estate are earned by investors who are willing and able to find diamonds in the rough and turn them into livable homes. The problem is that banks do not recognize the potential these properties possess. They will not lend on anything other than move-in-ready homes.
    Secured Investment Corp has created two private equity funds to fill the void left by uncooperative traditional funding sources. Investors have the potential to earn double-digit returns based on past performance. They started out by connecting real estate investors who needed non-traditional funding with passive investors who were ready to earn higher returns on their investments.
    THE RESULT: Passive investors get higher returns and real estate investors get quick, competitive loans to use to purchase and rehab those properties that traditional lenders will not touch.

    Secured Investment Corp Director of Funding and Impact Investments Podcast host Heather Dreves dropped by the booth to explain how the benefits outweigh the risks.
